    Very sorry to hear this. I never got up there to race but it was a comfort to know that the place was there. Hope Lee can find something, somewhere.

    Thanks for the info. George.

    Just to be clear, my figure of 200 was for what I would call "high end" wing car racers. Frankly, I doubt that there are even that many but it's a good figure to work from and it helps to illustrate...
